Activity for families with children aged 5 to 10.

How can a work of art recount feelings and sensations without using words? Every element from an artist’s choice of colour and form to their personal style helps to turn a work of art into an anthology of different moods. The workshop, which is free of charge, is held in the city’s libraries.
